Causes of Hand Amputations

In many cases, hands are amputated as a last resort—when the damage to the victim’s hand is so severe that the hand cannot be saved without the risk of infection or death. What leads to a hand amputation? Unfortunately, there are many possible causes of hand amputations. For example, the following personal injury accidents could result in amputations: car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, fires, boating accidents, explosions, defective products, and work accidents, such as electrocutions, machinery accidents, and construction accidents. It does not matter where or how you suffered an injury that required amputation; you could have the right to file a claim regardless. You must contact our law firm as soon as possible.

The Factors that Determine the Value of Your Hand Amputation Claim

Our law firm is often contacted with many questions regarding the average hand amputation settlement amounts. Many parties affected by a hand amputation want information regarding the average settlement amount of a hand amputation case. However, there is not one universal value that applies to all hand amputation claims. On the contrary, there are many factors that can affect the value of a claim. Without a doubt, the value of the hand amputation itself influences the value of the claim. The details that would affect this value include the costs for hospitalization, surgery, medication, and follow-up care, for example. However, the value of your claim could increase if you suffered additional injuries that also required treatment. If you temporarily or permanently lost your ability to work, the value of your claim could also increase. This value is often based on your age, wage history, and the time you were or will be unable to work. The value of your claim could also be affected by comparative negligence—or the victim’s role in causing the accident or injuries. Perhaps, most importantly, the value of your claim could be affected by policy limits. If you file a claim against an insurance company for your amputation, the value of your claim would be limited by the policy limit. In addition to the factors mentioned above, the value of your hand amputation claim could also be affected by the emotional and mental distress caused by the amputation, for example. For more information about the different factors that could affect the value of your claim, you must contact our attorneys as soon as possible.

How much is a Hand Amputation Case Worth?

In California, the maximum compensation available for recovery after a hand injury is approximately $153,000 in comparison to the national average of $144,000. In general, the average case settlement for a hand amputation can be worth more if your dominant hand was amputated. If you are right-handed and your right hand was amputated, your expected payout could exceed $150,000.

What is the Average Settlement for an Amputated Hand Case?

The average value of an amputated hand caused by an explosion (fireworks, to be specific) is approximately $15,600. As discussed above, there are many factors that could affect the expected settlement for a hand amputation lawsuit. In general, the lowest possible value of a hand amputation claim is approximately $75,000. If your amputation resulted from an accident caused by a party’s negligence, the claim can be worth up to $300,000.

How much Can You Receive If You Had Your Hand Amputated?

If you had your hand amputated, you could receive anything from $75,000 to $300,000 in compensation. The value of the amputation, without considering any other factors, is worth $153,000 maximum. The value of your claim also depends on what hand was amputated. If your left hand was amputated but you are right-handed, your claim can be worth less than if your dominant hand was amputated. If you are left-handed and suffered amputation of the left hand, your claim could be worth more.

Sample Verdicts and Settlements for Hand Amputations Claims

Below, there are a few examples of past hand amputations settlements and verdicts:

  • $400,000—the victim’s hand was amputated by a machine in his workplace.
  • $2.25 million—the victim’s left hand was amputated by a machine.
  • $2.5 million—the victim’s hand and forearm were amputated by a piece of machinery (a shredder) while attempting to address a paper jam.

What is the average compensation available for the victims of hand injuries that result in amputations? What is the average payout for a hand amputation claim?
